It's mostly one-sentence news alerts right now, with a few longer obits popping up. Apple is asking for remembrances on its website. I don't have a lot more to say, except that I knew it was probably soon, but not this soon.

It doesn't escape me that I've typed this on a device he designed, after using another device he designed to call my wife to see if she'd heard the news. Which she had, of course, after reading it on yet another device Steve Jobs designed.
